An interesting title isn’t it. But it’s true. Women can wear leggings, and we can all avoid staring at their butts. A couple stories I read on the web caught my eye that gave me a desire to address this topic in a post. One story was a woman who wrote an opinion on a Christian site that stated she would no longer wear leggings so not to tempt men to lust. A lot of women highly criticized the piece for its implication of women being at fault for man’s lust. Another story awhile ago that brought attention to the issue of leggings is a US representative from Montana proposed a bill that would ban yoga pants in public under indeceny laws. Let’s try to look at the issue from an objective standpoint, and see what we can find in Scripture. (more…)

A topic like this would seem to be a no-brainer in Christian culture today, and for most of my life before I became a student of the Word, this had been pretty much a no-brainer to me as well. I really despised when people that proclaimed to be Christians chose to say certain words that I thought shouldn’t be said by a Christian. I’ve always been very put off by it. But then when I thought about the meaning of cursing, I wondered to myself, is what we define as cursing today the same thing that Scripture defines as cursing?

Interpretation of Romans 7

Last updated on October 10th, 2019

Romans 7:4 “Therefore, my brethren, you also were made to die to the Law through the body of Christ, so that you might be joined to another, to Him who was raised from the dead, in order that we might bear fruit for God.” Hello again fellow Scripture students. Well, Romans 7 has easily been the most complicated chapter to understand thus far in studying this letter. It’s quite a fascinating piece of text. I’ll tell you that the way that I always try to approach understanding difficult material, is I try to come to a conclusion of whatever the main point that appears to be being stated, as well as follow context to maintain as close to an accurate understanding as possible.

The Necessity of Baptism for Salvation (Please read with an open mind)

So I’ve heard just about all of the arguments denying the necessity of baptism for salvation, and I thought I’d go through some of the most common ones. I hope if you are reading this from a position of already disagreeing with the title of this post, or perhaps you’ve never been taught this belief before, that you’ll read this with a very open mind. I’ve sincerely written this with a concerned heart for the souls that may be potentially lost from believing differently than what I’m going to present to you as truth. In the end, your decisions are all in your control and you’ll do what you think is best as we all do. (more…)
